The host rock of this specimen, which appears to be made of limestone, is partially covered with a crust layers of massive Azurite over malachite. As the material is polished, it has a bright, shiny luster. The Azurite's and malachite's colors are a characteristic dark blue and bright green, respectively. There is no discernable crystal form, though both the Azurite and the malachite show rounded patterns indicative of botryiodal formations. There are other veins that run through the host rock, but they are composed predominantly of malachite, and do not seem to extend far into the limestone. This piece may do well as a decoration on a shelf or a window sill.
